So from Lake's Entrance to Southbank the rain was either falling or coming in horizontal on Friday afternoon. Not to mention spray from numerous trucks, etc. Night-rider, booga, two-up and kraven all had some variation of the above, and before the trip was even a third over were soaked. I rode down from Wollongong in leathers, and when it started to rain, I put on my cheap $49 plastic pants and my cheap $53 plastic jacket, and was as dry as dust when we got to Southbank. Ditto on the way home Saturday, between Berwick and Orbost. So what is the gear supposed to do, and if it doesn't why does it cost so much??
